iStock_000007110604MediumThe Red Road Flats Project has teamed up with author Alison Irvine to create a piece of fiction which recounts the history of the the Red Road Flats and tells the stories of the lives of residents, past and present.

Incorporated within the piece will be detail on how the flats came about, how they were perceived, what happened in the ensuing years and how the flats are now. The piece of fiction will be based on real-life stories of residents. The stories will be separate yet interconnected, with linking themes, metaphors and characters.
